SLEEPLUST is the creative collaboration of twin brothers, guitarist Michael Pepe and bassist Joseph Pepe, vocalist Amber Ruthe and drummer Sarah Luffred. Around the same time in 2015, the four members moved to Los Angeles to pursue music full-time and would cross paths many times before coming together.

The band’s music is a distinctive mixture of sounds as diverse as their backgrounds. Michael and Joseph come from a rock and electronic background, while Sarah was deeply involved with hip-hop prior to the band. Amber, has origins in the electronic and post-punk worlds. With such diversity comes a unique approach to songwriting with the result being honest music that they hope will strike a chord with their fans and listeners.
